Choosing Your Destination
Choosing a resort that is more off the beaten path, rather than the big names like Aspen, Whistler and Vail, can help you save money, avoid long lift lines, and get more skiing or riding in. If you are a beginner and just learning to ski, you definitely don’t need to start with the biggest, fanciest mountains. The smaller resorts will have less expensive lift tickets, as well as accommodation, dining, etc. While you are learning you will move slowly to more advanced terrain and will probably be sticking to the green runs for the first couple days. Every resort has great green runs!
When to Go
In our experience, the best deals and discounts can typically be found in the early and late season. Any time before Christmas is typically early season but it can be hit or miss for snow. Our favorite time for ski vacations is anytime in March. The snow has fallen all season, the mountains have a solid base by March, and resorts have deals running for late season. March can also be one of the snowiest months, and many times is a bit warmer than January and February.
